ICSC 2019 - International Conference on Smart Cities

The International Conference on Smart Cities on Seoul-Korea will take place from 17 to 19 of July, The 2019 ICSC Conference is for smart city products and system manufacturers, smart city engineers and architects, smart urban system designers, disaster resilience professionals, smart city builders and construction managers, smart city maintenance engineers and asset managers, smart city consulting engineers, government employees and academic researchers involved in designing and managing smart cities worldwide.

The 2019 International Conference on Smart Cities (2019 ICSC: Chaired by Hosin “David” Lee, Professor of University of Iowa. President of iSMARTi and Board of Directors for Seoul Institute of Technology) is organized by International Society for Maintenance and Rehabilitation of Transportation Infrastructures (iSMARTi).  The best paper will receive the cash award (500 CHF) from the MDPI.  Select papers will be invited for possible publication in special issues of ASCE Journal of Infrastructure Systems or MDPI Infrastructures journal.

The 2019 ICSC Conference is for smart city products and system manufacturers, smart city engineers and architects, smart urban system designers, disaster resilience professionals, smart city builders and construction managers, smart city maintenance engineers and asset managers, smart city consulting engineers, government employees and academic researchers involved in designing and managing smart cities worldwide.

One of the Keynote speakers is going to be the Professor Cesare Sangiorgi is Associate Professor at University of Bologna. The use of recycled materials and low impact solutions are of primary importance. He is a coordinator of SAFERUP! an H2020 MSCA-ITN project based on Sustainable, Accessible, Safe, Resilient and Smart Urban Pavements.

On the following topic:

Track 1- Presentation Title:  Sustainable, Accessible, Safe, Resilient and Smart Urban Pavements

Abstract: Urban areas have become a jigsaw of living spaces delineated by roads, special lanes, bike lanes, footpaths, squares and the numerous walkable surfaces that permit people’s daily mobility. There are multiple paved areas, the characteristics of which vary according to their potential uses, in the spaces between the buildings where people live, work, study and relax. Urban pavements cover about 40% of urban areas and are the largest and most expensive public property on which people travel every day and they must accommodate all users in the most efficient, safe and enjoyable possible way in modern Smart cities. In a 2020 society that will have gone through an intense economic and cultural crisis and will aspire to more livable cities, a novel approach on how urban pavements are perceived, designed, built, maintained and managed is urgently needed. Safety, sustainability, resilience, accessibility, smart features and aesthetics are the key characteristics that modern countries should invest in for their pavements.

iSMARTi

The worldwide awareness of the sustainability of life and nature is indicative of an important role that civil infrastructures play in guaranteeing a sustainable life quality. Once an infrastructure is constructed its life-cycle demands a great effort in terms of maintenance and rehabilitation, in order not to jeopardize the initial investment in infrastructure assets and not to degrade surrounding and global environment. Thus, a new strategy in terms of research and development, through knowledge and its dissemination around the world, is being implemented with the support of a permanent organization, a technical and learned society − International Society for Maintenance and Rehabilitation of Transport Infrastructures (iSMARTi).

The iSMARTi was established in 2004 as a culmination of an internationally concerted effort among researchers and practitioners actively engaged in in maintaining and rehabilitating transportation Infrastructures. The main objective of iSMARTi is to promote the exchange of advanced knowledge and practical experiences among infrastructure engineering and management professionals Visit www.ismarti.org for more information. 

iSMARTi is dedicated to the theme of maintenance & rehabilitation of infrastructure assets of the transport system including corridors, airports, roads, pavements, tunnels and bridges, railroads, ports, dockland, utilities, and multimodal facilities. The society will support various different periodic events (conferences, workshops, short courses, technology synthesis reports), which will have the objective of promoting the exchange of know-how between the professionals involved in each of those infrastructure assets. iSMARTi's official journal is Infrastructures (ISSN 2412-3811,www.mdpi.com/journal/infrastructures), which is an international scientific open access journal covering all aspects of infrastructure engineering published quarterly online by MDPI.
